Transforming Tradition: The Pottery of Mata Ortíz

Discover a once-vanished ceramic tradition revived and transformed by Juan Quezada and the people of Mata Ortíz, Mexico. Come see how Quezada’s chance discovery of ceramic fragments inspired the rebirth of an ancient art form and brought new economic life to this tiny village. Both contemporary pottery handcrafted by artists from Mata Ortíz and the centuries-old ceramics that inspired the revival will be featured in Transforming Tradition: Pottery from Mata Ortíz, organized by The Field Museum in Chicago.
